1 Introduction

SCY-SE stands for Science Created by You Scenario Editor.

SCY is an EC project that

  • is learning by creating, sharing, reviewing, and building on emerging learning objects that happen within a learning activity space.
  • realizes an adaptive instructional approach based on pedagogical agents.

SCY-SE is a tool to model learning activities, i.e. to plan the management of a learning activity space

2 Software

The SCY-Scenario Editor (SCY-SE) is a FreeStyler-based tool to develop learning scenarios in the SCY way.

It provides a graphical language to describe and to orchestrate:

   * LAS (Learning Activity Spaces)
   * ELO (Emerging Learning Objects)
   * Tools
   * Activities
   * Scaffolds
   * Resources

Beside this basic functionality the SCY-SE enables the user to check constructed scenarios using the SCY ontology.

In addition SCY-SE provides the possibility to store created scenarios in a global (SQLSpaces-based, [1]) Repository.

A powerful similarity search allows to compare own scenarios with already stored scenarios of other users.

To see the SCY-SE in action, take a look at the Video. The System is available at [2].
